Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Parallel job using a basic transformer stage to run other jobs
    via the Basic Job Control API DSRunJob()
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Customer had designed a Parallel job that read a file containing
    a list of jobs and passed these to a basic transformer stage
    which attempted to launch those jobs using the Basic Job control
    API eg DSRunJob.
    Strangely this did not work.
    The main reason for failure was that the customer had a leading
    space in the invocation id which was resolved by a minor change
    to their job.
    We also noticed that the linkage between the log for controlling
    job and the launched job log were not working because the
    DSJobController pseudo parameter was incorrectly set.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    Any customer experiencing similar problems should apply the
    patch
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed DSRunJob to correctly set the DSJobController pseudo
    parameter.
